Aiesec conference

Last weekend my first Aiesec conference in India took place. The venue was a nice private setting in the outskirts of the city, surrounded by trees and water you did not really have the impression to be in the capital of India. Topics that were discussed covered cultural differences and the like, we had a small but nice group of participants and in general I can say that it was a success!

On Saturday night we went by cab from the venue of the conference to a setting in East Delhi, where some guru from ‘the art of living foundation’ was giving a lecture. More interesting than the Hindi speech that the guy gave was the plus 1100 people sitar (Indian guitar) concert that was held, a new world record and to be registered in the Guiness book of records! Among the hundreds of Indian sitar players sat proudly my roommate Paulo from Brazil, what made the whole experience even more special. As you can see on the picture we were supporting him with all our might!
